When WestJet flies to this destination:
Since the early days when Spanish Conquistadors arrived at the banks of the Rio Grande in 1598 to today, where millions of visitors come to see where the spirit of Texas and the cultures of New Mexico converge, El Paso has become a celebration of beauty waiting to be discovered.
The beautiful and majestic Franklin Mountains are the pride of El Paso. Visitors can ride the Wyler Aerial Tramway to Ranger Peak to get a panoramic view of the city, or drive along Transmountain Road, which cuts right through the mountain. Enjoy a picnic in Franklin Mountains State Park, the largest urban park in the U.S. For outdoor adventurers, there's also mountain biking, hiking and rock climbing virtually any time of the year.
Walking tours are a great way to soak up El Paso's great outdoors – and learn about its rich history in the process. A tour of downtown only takes about 90 minutes and will take you to see historic architectural landmarks. If you're up for a half-day walking tour, don't miss the chance to experience El Paso's Mission Trail. Stroll through rustic churches originally built in the 1600s. Still owned by the Catholic Church, many of them remain open for services, usually during daytime hours.
Spend a little time at one of the city's 10 art galleries. Adair Margo Fine Art showcases more than 400 artists from countries around the world and has worked to see its art placed in national museum collections, the White House and in U.S. Embassies worldwide. If you're really looking to be inspired, check out the Creative Kids, OLO Gallery, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the arts for disadvantaged youth, youth with disabilities and youth fighting cancer. The gallery features works of art from children enrolled in the organization's programs.
